Making Home 

Sasha Mishkin

16 May - 2 June 2018

Finissage 29 May 2018, 5 - 8pm.

What can a living space say about those who inhabit it? How do household objects manifest as mementos of past and present landscapes? Making Home consists of portraits in the homes of immigrants living in Sydney. A home is a material and functional space. Simultaneously, ‘home’ as a concept represents societal norms and ideals of comfort, belonging, security, and family. Reflecting on her own experience of ‘making home’ in a new country, Mishkin considers what it looks and feels like to establish a corner of comfort in a society where many migrants are made to feel they don’t belong. In direct consultation with the participants in this series, Making Home explores the domestic environment as a site where personality is performed and interior worlds portrayed.
